Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
Rome's Revolution is a science fiction series about a man from the 21st century and a woman from the 35th century who meet and fall in love. Along the way, they face dangers bigger than the sun and smaller than the eye can see. Rei Bierak, the hero, is one of 543 humans, frozen and launched in the Ark II toward the stars with the hope of establishing a colony on a habitable world in the Tau Ceti system. However, the ship is damaged and tumbles in an uncontrolled fashion until it is discovered 14 centuries later. The 24-chromosome mind-connected humans of the future called the Vuduri are efficient, indifferent, and emotionally deficient. The Vuduri have conquered faster-than-light travel and have established an outpost in the Pi3 Orionis system (aka Tabit) to study why certain stars are disappearing. They thaw Rei out, he meets Rome and the adventure begins.

Cinematic in scope, Rome's Revolution offers romance, comedy, heart-pounding thrills, suspense, "legal" time travel, and meticulously researched hard science. It is a love story and a culture clash that celebrates the triumph of the individual over a mass-mind that thinks it is infallible. Rome's Revolution has it all: robots, aliens, computers, genetic manipulation, spaceships that travel faster than light and some that travel a lot slower.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I never had any intention of being an indie author. I just wanted to be an author. I wrote stories, novels, submitted them to agents for years and never got anywhere. Suddenly, this wonderful option became available and I have embraced it wholeheartedly. I can publish, edit, advertise, revise, do whatever I need to gain a wider audience.
